Seen at Trader Joe’s: Fresh HATCH CHILE PEPPERS (seasonal)


SEASONAL ITEM (summertime): Fresh HATCH CHILE peppers from New Mexico. Some are marked HOT and some were MEDIUM and even MILD. These famous peppers have almost a cult following. These are seasonal items I remember seeing a few years ago at Trader Joe’s, pre-Covid, here in NYC. If you want to try these grab them ASAP as they are not around for long. Roast them on the grill or under the broiler to bring out the flavor. I have also just sautéed them until slightly charred. You can enjoy them all year in a dried flaked version at TJ’s as Hatch Chile Flakes. The sign has a mistake and says they are from “Mexico” nope, the Hatch valley is in New Mexico !

    They taste good, not too hot, the skin is a bit thicker than I expected.
